Bergo '45 - Song of the Week: This is a weekly dive into the musical mind of Bergo '45. At the start of each week, a new song is chosen by a different member of the band as part of our Song of the Week Series. Every selection made is one of many ingredients mixed into the band's collective cauldron of influences and generally speaking, all fall into genres under that great incestuous umbrella known as Rock And Roll.

Take a chair, grab a towel and give it a listen...

/// Bergo '45 - Song of the Week #22 :: Devon's Pick for 12/1/13

"My favorite thing about this song is how it seems half as long as it really is. It gets me every time." - Devon Beuschel

Traffic were an English rock band whose members came from the West Midlands. The group formed in April 1967 by Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood and Dave Mason. They began as a psychedelic rock group whose early singles were influenced by The Beatles and diversified their sound through the use of instruments such as keyboards like the Mellotron, reed instruments, and by incorporating jazz and improvisational techniques in their music. Their first three singles were "Paper Sun", "Hole in My Shoe", and "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush".

After disbanding in 1969, during which time Winwood joined Blind Faith, Traffic reunited in 1970 to release the critically acclaimed album John Barleycorn Must Die. The band's line-up varied from this point until they disbanded again in 1975, although a partial reunion, with Winwood and Capaldi, took place in 1994.

In 2004, Traffic was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
